Financial Aid Overview

SDSU is committed to helping students find the resources available to help pay for college. The Financial Aid Office is a member of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), and our staff follow the NASFAA Code of Conduct and Ethical Principals.

Students who want to apply for federal student aid will need to complete the FAFSA. When completing the FAFSA, be sure to list SDSU's school code (003471). The priority deadline for submitting the FAFSA is March 15.

Each student who completes the FAFSA will receive an Award/Resources Letter from SDSU detailing the student's financial aid package. Financial aid packages may include loans, grants, Work-Study, and scholarships. Award letters are all accessed online through a student's WebAdvisor account, no paper letters are sent. Students will receive notification when they have been awarded each year in their Jacks email account.     

To find out more about financial aid at SDSU, please see our Types of Aid, Financial Aid FAQs, and Cost Estimate pages.

If your income in the current year will be significantly less than it was last year, please visit the Financial Aid Office to speak with a Financial Aid Counselor. 

Contact the Financial Aid Office if you have additional questions or special circumstances that you want to discuss.

SDSU complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). If a student is enrolled at SDSU and a parent wants to be able to discuss the student's financial aid with our office we must have a Right to Privacy Release Form on file that is signed by the student.
